{Gluten-Free} Hot Milk-Matcha Bundt with Chocolate Silk Sauce #PeoplehoodoftheTravelingSwirlyPan

Remember that I have Dorothy (she's a bundt pan) and Toto (he's a journal) visiting from the Peoplehood of the Traveling Swirly Pan? You can read more about that - and see my first recipe with Dorothy - here when I made a Gluten-free Bourbon Gingerbread with Prickly Pear Lemon Curd.

My second adventure was a complete and total flop. I tried to make a savory Mexican egg bake and it stuck miserably. It tasted great, but it was beyond ugly. So, I won't be sharing that recipe on the blog or sharing it with the #PeoplehoodoftheTravelingSwirlyPan. Flops happen...and you move on, right?

So, for our Fathers' Day dessert, I decided to make Jake a Hot Milk-Matcha Bundt with Chocolate Silk Sauce. My Love, thanks for being the fun parent...our boys need one!

I am guessing that my luck with unmolding the gingerbread was a total fluke because my third attempt with Dorothy also resulted in stuck cake. Ugh. 

Thank goodness for chocolate sauce!! The dessert was amazingly delicious. It was just ugly. Again.

  • 1 C butter, cut into cubes
  • 1 C milk
  • 1 C gluten-free flour blend
  • 1 C sweet white rice flour
  • 1 C ground almonds
  • 1 T baking powder
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1-1/2 C organic granulated sugar
  • 1 t pure vanilla extract
  • 2 T matcha green tea powder
  • 1 pint heavy whipping cream
  • 10 oz semi-sweet chocolate chunks
  • 2 T sugar
  • 2 T butter

Butter and flour the baking dish. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine milk and butter in a saucepan and cook over low heat until the butter is completely melted. Remove from the heat. Place all of the remaining ingredients in a large mixing bowl, whisk the eggs to break them up.

Mix in the extract, then the milk mixture. Whisk until just moistened. Pour into prepared dish and bake till the cake is well-risen, smooth, a deep golden brown, and firm to the touch - approximately 50 minutes. Let the cake cool for 10 minutes. Loosen the cake from the pan and invert onto a cooling rack.

Combine the cream and sugar and heat it over medium heat. Just before it boils, remove the pan from the heat, add the chocolate and butter, stirring till it's completely melted. Cool slightly, then whisk. This sauce is best served warm.

Slice bundt and drizzle with sauce. Serve immediately.

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

Aloo Tiki {Pakistan}

To start off our Pakistani culinary adventure, I started us off with aloo tiki - potato cutlets. I'm always game for tasty street food. I found a couple of different recipes and incorporated those together for this version. Ingredients 6-8 small red potatoes, scrubbed 1 T cumin seeds 1 T fresh chopped parsley 1/2 t ground coriander 1 t minced garlic Procedure Boil the potatoes until they are tender. Drain and let cool. Mash the potatoes. Traditionally they are mashed without their skins. I left the skins on. In a small pan, toast the cumin seeds on high heat until the begin to give off an aroma and begin to darken. Remove from heat and transfer to a plate to keep them from cooking any more. Blend all of the spices into the mashed potatoes, then shape into small patties. If you wet your hands, the potato mixture won't stick to them. Heat a splash of oil in a large, flat-bottom pan. Dip each patty into beaten egg and carefully place in the oil. P

Hot Chocolate Agasajo-Style {Spice It Up!}

photo by D For my Spice It Up! kiddos this week, I was looking for an exotic drink to serve while we learned about saffron. I found a recipe from food historian Maricel Presilla that mimicked traditional Spanish hot chocolate from the 17th century where it was served at lavish receptions called agasajos . When I teach, I don't always get to shoot photos. Thankfully, D grabbed my camera and snapped a few. Ingredients serves 14-16 1 gallon organic whole milk 3 T dried rosebuds - or 2 t rosewater 2 t saffron threads, lightly crushed 3 T ground cinnamon 3 whole tepin chiles, crushed 2 vanilla beans, split lengthwise 1 C organic granulated sugar 1 lb. bittersweet chocolate Procedure In a large soup pot that can hold a gallon plus, combine milk, dried rosebuds (or rosewater, if you are using that), saffron threads, ground cinnamon, chiles, vanilla beans, and sugar and warm over medium heat till it steams. Whisk to dissolve sugar, then lower heat an
